WHAT: Blue Bunny’s Bunny Snacks
STATS: Vary by flavor. One of the Salted Caramel Pretzel snacks contains 160 calories and 8 fat, 20 carbohydrate, zero fiber, 15 sugar and 2 protein grams. We found them at Wal-Mart, 700 Bowman Road, Little Rock. Visit bluebunny.com. THE SKINNY: We’re no dumb bunnies. We know better than to keep big containers of ice cream in the freezer this time — or any time — of the year.
It’s safer to keep a small inventory of individually wrapped portion-controlled frozen novelties, like Blue Bunny’s new Bunny Snacks, which feature reduced-fat ice cream and are sold in boxes of six.
We’ve only seen and sampled the rich Salted Caramel Pretzel flavor — a round puck of vanilla ice cream, layered with salted caramel and chocolate-covered pretzel pieces and robed in chocolate-flavored coating with caramel drizzle. But according to the brand’s website, there are three others: Chocolate Vanilla Twist, Chocolate Chip Cookie and Cookies ’N Cream.
Bunny Snacks can satisfy the sweet, summery treat cravings of aspiring beach bunnies.
